You want to know what was expected of Bush after he was told that a second plane hit the twin towers?
He should have nicely excused himself and told the class, the teacher, and onlooking media, that he has an urgent matter he must attend to.
That's it. No one is saying he should have broken down crying, freaked out, tore away his flesh, etc.
People are asking why the hell he didn't do what a president should do ... leave and lead the county. He didn't do it.
To top that off he later said that he remembered watching the television before he entered the class room and watched the plan hit the tower. You remember ... the infamous "that's one terrible pilot," quote. There was no TV and the video of the first plane hitting the twin towers didn't surface until later that day.
So what, right? ... he had a brain fart. He saw it later and thought he saw it before he went into the classroom, no big deal ... right?
Well ... that brain fart must have stayed w/ the Dubya because he repeated the same thing in a separate interview that used to be posted on the whitehouse.gov
site from my understanding.
This guy has no credibility left. He should get out while most of the Nation is willing to forget it happen.
If Dubya is reelected then the world will cease to give America a pass.
Look for more countries to join the European Union, for Tony Blair to be booted out of his position, and for many in the EU to push for a United States of Europe.
The U.S.E. will push to equal or surpass the U.S.'s military strength.
Don't expect the rest of the world to sit idle while the U.S. uses the "war on terror" to cover war profiteering.
If you don't know about the PNAC then look it up. You'll learn that 8 individuals from that group were appointed to high level positions in the administration. They have a lot of power.
Their doctrine is a watered down version of the Wolfowitz Doctrine and that is to take down any country that could pose a future threat to the U.S. It doesn't mean that a country w/ some power needs to actually threaten the U.S. or bomb us, they only need to exist. The word "defend" will be tossed around, but it's a joke.
The Wolfowitz doctrine was radicial even by most Republican standards and most rejected it ... now it's back in the form of PNAC high level appointees and a Patriot Act that many didn't even read before they voted to pass it.
If Republicans want to save their party then boot the NeoCons and Freepers out. Even the son of Pres. Eisenhower has turned against the NeoCons because they don't reflect the Republican party.
Save your party or we could end up facing certain world rebellion or even a possible second U.S. civil war.
People ... it's time to wave the flag and quit wearing it over your heads.
